I have a very stable (but slow) wireless client plug using the binaries distributed here http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Setting_GuruPlug_to_be_a_stable_WiFi_Client

I came across this posting https://gist.github.com/961478.

Does it look like this patch could address the problems described here?
http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=4397.0

I would like to try a recent kernel on the plug to see if the slow data transfer improves.

I had a look at this with 3.* kernels in mind.
My verdict was to drop the idea of this module and go back to hoping that the libertas modules improve.
